建筑竞赛 Race for the Tallest Towers ...


Petronas Twin Towers took 7 years, 
Dubai Towers was built over 5 years, 
I hear a recent news about the coming of another 
tallest tower in China which reportedly will 
only take 10 months to built

Nice architectual shot. But it is also a great enginering product that you are photographing here. Thanks for showing Wong.

It is known that in China they built very fast but they don't take in to account the preparation phase of teh components.

Greetings,
Filip

Nie powiewem robi wrażenie, ale jednocześnie przeraża jak całe Chiny. Chyba to efekt Sybilli, który wbiła mi w głowę babcia.

Yes Wong, I was in Shanghai 3 years ago and a guide told me that Chinese build very quickly. Gorgeous shot. I'd like to come and see these towers a day.
Bye bye
